Project description:

Wernersholm

The project consists of a 15 unit housing development on private property in the suburban area Hop, in Bergen. The main challenges of the plot were topography and traffic noise. The building scheme enables both high utilization of the site, and a small scale appearance. The concept is based on the idea to obtain a maximum amount of high quality outdoor areas, and at the same time organize the buildings so that they protect these areas from the present traffic noise from the adjacent road structure.

The project is an approach to combine the qualities of the family home, with the practical/economical advantages in cooperative housing. This aspect is also reflected in the variety of housing typologies, spanning from 50 m2 to 140 m2 within an innovative structural framework.
